Lots of fun features at the water park. Torrent river was the most fun, contained wave generator that runs on a lazy river. Went too many times and ended up getting seasick from all the waves and continuous circles. But that shows it is lots...More

We have been to many water parks. Schlitterbahn is great because of the "transportainment" system that takes you all over the park as a ride. It is like a lazy river but mostly you have to pay attention for divided paths and waves. We went...More

This is an amazing place to bring your kids for the day. You can bring in coolers and pack your own lunches which makes the experience that much better. I do recommend that you wear some sort of swim shoe as the cement and wooden...More

The grandkids love the lazy river. I was somewhat disappointed that over half the park was closed due to an accident the day before. I thought they should have let us know this when we bought tickets. We expected 1/3 of the park to be...More

We stayed across the street at Moody Gardens. We took the pool towels from there. They likely don't like that (the hotel) , but we brought them back so no,harm no foul.

Response from Brooke I | Reviewed this property |
The lockers are very small, take as little and as few items inside as possible if you intend on renting a locker. I do not recall the exact amount to rent one but I remember thinking it was a little steep.
Can anyone tell me how cold the water is this year? Going next week but don't want to buy tickets if water is to cold. Thank you
